Genie Slide Number 24

Along with the lantern slides we found a smaller box of older slides.  These are hand painted and are made up of images from around the world.  We expect that these were used in church services to illustrate the work of missionaries.  Most of the congregation would never have seen these places for themselves and I imagine that they would have been amazed at the images.  There are also slides of the words of hymns, probably used to lead singing in services.
